Santa Fe 3751 from National Train Day (May 12, 2012)
I rode the trains a total of about 200 miles on May 12, 2012, for National Train Day. A majority of my time was spent at the historic Los Angeles Union Station where the Santa Fe 3751 steam engine and many other historic cars were on display.
Following are three pictures of Santa Fe 3751.
Actually, all three pictures are the same. However, since Union Station is a very heavily used transit terminal, 3751 was shunted onto one of the worst possible tracks there for photography.
The first picture is the best I could get with my Canon 550D. Good thing I don’t rely on “getting the perfect shot in the camera” because it wasn’t going to happen yesterday.
The second picture is a black and white version done in Lightroom 4.
The third picture was heavily adjusted in Lightroom and Photoshop with the sky being added in Photoshop CS6.
The third picture is closer to what I remember seeing…. the wonder of digital photography where we can create the pictures we saw rather than relying on what the camera wants to give us.
